During these challenging times, we appreciate that you may not be able to access some of the suggested resources in the activity lesson plans.

Where possible, we would urge you to draw upon your child’s imagination to role-play or use plastic/toy versions of the required resource.

Being imaginative is an integral part of our curriculum at Clowns and, therefore, through this medium we hope that your child is able to access and enjoy the set activities, regardless of the resources available. 

NOTE: There are some great online resources that we access  at nursery.  We do this via the platform Safeshare.tv as it has a content filter for children under 5 years of age.  Although it uses YouTube as a source for short videos and clips, it cleans up the videos and removes all advertisements and peripheral content. It also allows us to edit the videos so the children only view the content that is relevant to the further enhancement of our chosen topics. 
Please be advised that the links we are providing in the portal are direct online links.  As such, you are responsible for any subsequent content that may appear around the video.  A full screen view often minimises peripheral content, but adverts may still pop up along the bottom of the screen and/or at the beginning or end of each video.
